Your worst nightmare came true with Rocky Nightmare coming into the picture. If things weren't tough enough let's end with an uphill on Sinks.

This trail has a sign at the top where it ties in from the North Plateau Loop that tells you that bikes are not allowed but like a dumbass I went ahead and hiked the bike down to the bottom hoping to find some rideable trail. I didn’t find anything remotely rideable. My reward was carrying the bike back uphill on the Natural Well trail.

If you start from the park side the downhill is EXTREMELY difficult. It would have been more fun to start the downhill from the South plateau side and hike a bike back up

Fun little tech challenge, not too difficult but keeps you on your toes. Good for practicing slow rock maneuvers and balance while turning over rock faces.

Fun tech trail ????. I would avoid connecting to power line trail at the end because it's overgrown and the trail disappears in parts. Just ride back up to beginning of warpath.
